How do I "paste" a file into a executable (let's say it is a zip-file, the executable is going to extract)? Just like WinZip is doing it with Self-Extractor.

Hi... sometimes it's easier (and relatively 'cheaper') to search for PAQ before posting a question :)

Anyway, check out these article:

It depends on whether you want to add the file to the exe at compile time (easy) or if you want to have a delphi program that can modify itself at runtime by adding files to it's own exe that can later be extracted.... I have some demos of the 2nd method on my site http://delphi.does.it

look at (the extractor) and the (new extractor) demos
the new one has cleaner source code :-)
